Literally one day after I shared Weezer's video for their cover of Africa on my blog, they drop a new video from off of their Teal Album. This one is a cover of the 80's anthem "Take on me" originally performed by the band A-ha.
Presumably playing a young Rivers is Finn Wolfhard. Best known as Mike Wheeler in Stranger Things and Richie in the remake of Stephen King's It. Weezer has always put out entertaining videos, but these last two off of their latest release have been home runs! This one oozes 80's nostalgia, and the hand drawn scenes were a fitting tribute to the original and a nice touch. Interesting that the band hasn't put themselves in either of their new videos. Perhaps that will change in upcoming releases. I can't wait to see what the next one will be!
